11:05 am
normally quiet part of north vallejo. police say four cars filled with people from south san francisco were headed to a party in vallejo when one of the im:' gt a flat tire. everyone pulled over and got out to help the driver. well, that's when police say a white suv with tinted windows drove by and someone from inside opened fire. >> i was in the living room, and i just heard a big boom. i came outside, and there was just people trying to fix their broken wheel. i went back in the house, and i just heard, like, 20-some gunshots. i just stayed in the house. >> when police got to the scene, they found a total of five victims, one of them a 19-year-old who died at the scene. three others later showed up at the hospital with gunshot wounds. those other seven people are expected to survive. now, police in sacramento are looking for answers this morning after a drive-by shooting there outside a halloween party that killed one person and injured six others.
11:06 am
so far there are no arrests, but investigators say the promotors of saturday night's party could face charges. the party was held in a recording studio that was turned into a nightclub, and the promotors did not have the proper permits. the victims were leaving the party when someone in a passing car opened fire. >> he pulled out his gun and started shooting. that was all i seen. everybody was just scattered. it was horrifying. you knowg shot. we seen everything -- we seen them fall back completely. >> the six other people injured in the shooting are expected to survive. in the north bay now this morning, emotions are still running high in santa row issa following the shooting death of a 13-year-old boy. hundreds of people gathered yesterday to pay their respects to andy lopez. last week a sonoma county sheriffs deputy shot lopez seven times, killing him. lopez was carrying a replica gun designed to look like an ak-47
11:07 am
assault rifle. authorities say lopez did not follow orders to drop his weapon, and instead raised the barrel of the replica gun toward deputies. the fbi is now conducting an independent investigation. in the east bay now, the alameda county sheriffs office is investigating a senior care facility accused of abandoned 14 patients. authorities say patients at the valley springs manor nursing home in castro valley were left with only a cook, a janitor, and a caretaker for two days last week. the rest of the employees left after the state ordered the facility to temporarily shut down. the remaining workers eventually became alarmed and called the sheriffs office. state officials say the owner of the nursing home also ownsf&d t facilities in oakland and modesto. those facilities were shut down last week as well. if a san francisco supervisor has his way, get ready to pay more for sugary drinks like soda. the plan is to increase the tax
11:08 am
on those drinks and use)-r that money to fight childhood obes y obesity. nbc bay area's christie smith is live in san francisco. other cities have tried to implement a soda tax just like this. >> reporter: yeah, that's exactly right. if this were to pass in san francisco, you'd pay a 40-cent tax on a soda this size, assuming it were all the way full. now, as you said, these types of taxes have failed before, even right here in the bay area. supervisor scott weiner thinks this time will be different here in san francisco. that's because he believes that san francisco voters would be willing to tax the drinks if they know thath@$ proceeds go toward programs that help keep kids healthy. the proposal is a tax of two cents per ounce on sugar-sweetened drinks. he said there's clear evidence there's a link between these types of drinks and obesity and type ii diabetes. a recent poll shows $x68% of californians would support a tax if it went to fitness and nutrition in schools, youth, and
11:09 am
after-school programs. that's what this would do here in the city, bring in an estimated $31 million. in richmond, a similar tax was defeated last year. now it's san francisco's turn. >> the beverage industry will definitely fight this measure. they fight it every0éuz it comes up anywhere. we expect that. but the fact is this is a basic public health measure just like we tax cigarettes because they cause a lot of health problems. cigarette manufacturers fought that tooth and nail, every step of the way. this is an important step forward for public health. >> reporter: now, the tax would not apply to things like diet soda, natural juices, milk, baby formula, or medical drinks. you may recall new york mayor michael bloomberg tried an all-out ban on sugary drinks that were over 16 ounces, but the court stopped that. i asked weiner about that, and he thinks that ban is just too restrictive. this is going to be introduced tomorrow. there will be public hearings so you can weigh in.
11:10 am

11:11 am
i'm greatly relieved. i'm thrilled because i know first hand how horrific this has been, what an ordeal it's been. >> reporter: murray was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter for giving je ining jackson a de of propofol, a surgical anesthetic that the singer used to fight insomnia. murray insists jackson dosed himself the night he died and plans to appeal his conviction and start the process toward getting his medical licenses reinstated. murray's lawyer says he's been in excellent spirits and has been looking forward to seeing his girlfriend and his 4-year-old son, but mostly looking forward to clearing his name so he can practice medicine again. nbc news, los angeles. still to come, the childhood home of late apple co-founder steve jobs is up for a very special designation today. we'll explain next. twitter gets one step closer to an ipo. we'll have the latest on the hottest san francisco company coming up in business and tech. also a major storm blows
